Clayton Fejedelem had almost no impact on the Miami Dolphins in 2020 and 2021 may see him elsewhere.
Aside from a fake punt that Fejedelem turned into a first down and drive extension, the special teams player missed the first three games and then another a few weeks later. He was primarily used on special teams.
Fejedelem recorded 10 total tackles this year but he also added a forced fumble and recovery against the Raiders in week 16. The question is what do the Dolphins view his value at?
This year, Fejedelem is scheduled to make $2.5 million and all of that money is recoverable. While it may not seem to be all that much considering the value of players in the NFL these days, Miami may not look at a player who is special teams only and doesn’t touch the ball, worth over two million.
The Miami Dolphins will turn over their roster again in 2021 but this time it will be the bottom that feels the pain.
Obviously, there are other players who probably won’t be back with Miami. The need to upgrade the receiver position could spell the end for guys like Isaiah Ford and Mack Hollins. At running back I would be surprised to see anyone but Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed back for training camp. The Dolphins released Chandler Cox last Saturday and Patrick Laird is probably not going to last long into the next season.
